of washington. who was it that was behind the scenes putting all of this together for him. >> it apparently was ari fleischer. former white house press secretary who apparently had a hand in suggesting what he did. and if you look at the way mcgwire did this, he was very emotional in his interview. but knowing that he dotted all those is, he crossed the ts, it sounds like something that was very, very planned. but the big question is how much he really feels about this, because he admitted he did it because of injuries. he did not say that he wouldn't have been able to accomplish that record if he was not on steroids. >> i thought the maris phone call, the phone call to mrs. maris, that made it more genuine to me than anything else he did. >> it was a classy thing to do. >> and probably the product of the advice from ari fleischer. >> but probably the single toughest phone call he had to make. >> and there's the whole hall of fame question. he has now 24% of the vote. he will need 75% if he's going to get in. that's another question. could it be the timing. >> won't get my vote. >> lindsay
't come close enough for "the washington post's" kathleen parker who writes -- "obama's open-collared vacation was deliver odd and katrina time, about two days too late, and fell a few links short of reassuring. calm in the face of potential zaft cere laudable but it's a fine line between executive tranquility and passive nonchalance. like a tone-deaf disk jock ji, obama plays elevator music when the crowd wants john philip souza. i'm joined by analyst pat buchanan and peter fenn. happy new year. >> happy new year, chris. >> is that fair, the criticism that the president was tone-deaf? >> no. the fact is you have to go out and make a statement if you're president of the united states with the facts. i think the administration coming out on sunday and saying the system worked is a legitimate criticism. the system clearly didn't work and the president, you know, on tuesday said just that. but i think -- you know, i think that the monday morning quarterbacking by conservative columnists is really not called for. what the american people want, chris, is they want less finger-poin
that the public can do by itself. we do need political leadership here. for washington to realize that reasonable regulation with the into being fair, consistent financial market discipline that this is not a barrier to free market capitalism. that this is in the and necessary prerequisite to free market capitalism. so with that, i am very happy to take questions. thank you very much. [applause] >> i am howard, and my job here today is to point out questioners for nicole. if i might start, nicole, on your point about extending simple rules to new markets, do you have some feeling -- there's a lot of legislation now being considered in washington both on the house and senate side. is any of it consisted with a prescription you've offered this morning? >> no. [laughter] >> the one thing that is consistent was one of the first bills that came out, which was put unregulated derivatives on the regulated markets. however, that seems to have disappeared somewhere, and now we have chris dodd and senator dodd and representative barney frank going with this idea from president obama to create the systemic
or find a different solution from the president? >> not at all i've one an independent voice in washington since i there in january. i did not support the tax on -- of 90% on people who got bonuses. i do not support a lot of the initiatives going against the banking industry now. this is the lifeblood of new york city, financial services industry. 70,000 people from my district work there everyday. >> neil: what do they tell you when the president talks about bankers and brokers equivalent of satan and all of that? what do you say? these are your constituents, what do you say? >> what i say is that i don't adopt populist rhetoric or put blame on one very important sector of our economy. i came into the city council in 2003 right after 9/11 they -- in 2002 right after 9/11. we climbed out quicker because of a financial services rebound. the engine to do that is the financial services industry. we need regulation, yes. we can't throw the baby out with the bathwater. we can't put arbitrary limits on the sides of banks we have to do things that make sense so these great companies can move forw
the american people want. the poll you took said 93% of americans think washington is too partisan. the other 7% still live in washington. that's what president obama campaigned against in 2008. that was his initial offer saying there are no red states or blue states. he may get written off as roll your eyes by the washington crowd but it's what the american people want to see. >> on that point, it's not a good idea for the president at least on the on-camera portion to attack the crowd that's been attacking him. >> no, and he's doing a good thing by going and talking to them. i was dit disheartened to see john boehner say he has principles, he's not going to negotiate for the sake of negotiating. what's the point then? either you want 100% of the loaf. the american people want these parties to work together. boehner's comments were disheartening. if i'm obama i'm going there thinking this guy doesn't want to negotiate on anything, what's the point? why am i wasting the gas mile age to go 50 miles to baltimore? >> here is what john boehner said about the president's state of the union address.
. there was a typical column in the washington times where it was said o'keefe was a role model for millions of americans and a true american patriot. there are serious questions here tonight about not just the credibility of o'keefe and his previous work, but about all those people who held him up as some kind of shining example for the media and for america's youth. >> well, he is a role model for those who are interested in going into the production or starring in our series "lockup." it was almost by accident when we were talking about the original watergate, and there's nothing to suggest these two incidences are equivalent other than the phones and the break-in. almost by accident we got the information. is this being taken seriously politically in washington and is there any indication that o'keefe has ever gotten a dime from any republican or conservative organization? >> we don't know what his funding has been. there have been lots of questions asked, and not much information has come out. we know for one fact that he's media sponsorship. the web of media coverage that has promoted
